Your Sister's Sister (film)

We saw said romcom this afternoon in a cinema initially completely empty. Three women then arrived as the feature started and we were led to a cabin in the woods where Jack, Iris and her sister Hannah worked out their angst.

It's a slight film with an implausible, almost Shakespearean plot involving Iris (Emily Blunt doing her Kate Middleton impression) with her pining for 'best-friend' Jack while he is being manoeuvred into a sperm donation for baby-hungry Hannah (the square-jawed vegan lesbian sister). All boxes are ticked en route and the finale presents a very self-satisfied, smug and weepy love triangle.

Verdict: claustrophobic from Clare and girly from me.
